Photo Inspiration

This week at Frosted Designs we have a really cool challenge going on!  We are taking this photo and we are using it to inspire a layout card or project.

You can be inspired by the colors, textures, design, etc. of the photo, but use it to make some sort of project.  I used the flower design and texture of the flower to inspire my layout.  I also made sure to use both green and purple.  I had so much fun making this layout.

Who doesn't love shoes! I know I do.  This week at Frosted Design we are supposed to create a project that has a shoe on it in some way.  Head over to Frosted Designs and see all the great projects created by the rest of the design team.  Now I will be the first to admit that my project was a bit of a stretch, but Bombshell stamp IS wearing boots and boots are a kind of shoe.  I really just wanted an excuse to use my stamp.  Love those things.
 I used the April Little Red Scrapbook kit for this card.

One of my favorite things and some catching up.

It has been awhile since I have updated my blog.  Bad of me, I know.  Life just gets crazy sometimes.  I wanted to take some time to update you all with some recent projects that I have created.  The first one is a layout I did for's National Scrapbooking Day All week challenge.  For this challenge we were supposed to scrap a picture of a thing.  No people or pets allowed.  I knew the photo I wanted to use immediately!  I realized this Hanukkah that I didn't have ANY photos of the gorgeous menorah that my grandmother gave to me.  I made it a point to take a photo of the menorah on the 8th night of Hanukkah so it would be full of candles burning bright.  This menorah is very special to me and definitely one of my prized possessions.  My grandmother gave it to me when I moved out on my own and she picked one for me that so perfectly fits my style.  I think it it beyond beautiful.  I used the Basic Grey Ambrosia line for this layout because it is one of my favorite paper lines.  I thought mixing favorites was fitting.
  Next I wanted to share a layout that I did for Frosted Designs 2 weeks ago!  This was for their sanding challenge.  We were supposed to use sand paper on our project to distress it.  Sanding is a great distressing technique, but I never seem to remember to use it.  It was great to be given the excuse to do it.  I sanded many of the printed papers and also the main photo's edges.  This is a layout about my niece's 6th birthday.
 Finally our project this week at Frosted Design is to make a project using the colors of the rainbow.  I felt that Basic Grey's Lime Rickey line was perfect for this challenge.  It has every color right there in the paper.  Plus it is just so bright and fun!
